Amazing Geera (Cumin) Pork Tacos

I came across this site called Caribbean Pot the other day and saw something called Geera Pork.  I am pretty sure Geera is the Indian work for cumin but if not sorry!  This is the most tender delicious meat I have tried in years. The habanero pepper adds a nice kick but not overwhelming. Usually, this meat is served alone but I decided to pair this up with a taco and pineapple/cilantro salsa. Hello Mexico you might want to add this to your taco trucks.  This is one of my favorite finds of all time.  The dish has Indian and Caribbean influences but I added a few twists.  Enjoy.
